Do you like things with Pumpkin (or Pumpkin Spice?) Pumpkin spiced tea or chai is always a go. I like soap of that ilk, but not perfumes or home scents. Do you decorate for Halloween all year? If not, what level of decor do you have for Halloween? Everyday is Halloween. We vamp it up outdoors for the holiday with grave stones, cobwebs, pumpkins lining the steps and eyeballs hanging from our trees. We have a year-round haunted house decal with an orange moon and gravestones that stays up year-round, as well as our small flock of zombie and skeleton lawn flamingos. Inside, we have a silvered decorative skull, some spooky images, stuffed ghostly or creature plushes (Cthulhu and the ilk), ravens feathers, Baroque skull dish towels, circus stripe comforter, and a few smatterings of spooky goodies indoors year-round. We usually add in our skeleton figures and a couple LED items inside, but the budget and time I have hasn't let me go as crazy as I'd like.
Indoor/outdoor Halloween decorations? What do you do, and what would you prefer to receive? Both would be most welcome. Pink yard flamingos I can modify to join my spooky year-round flock will earn you lots and lots of bonus points. Those flocked velvet candelabra at Michael's and silvered pumpkins and JoAnns are calling my name, but I've sworn to be good. I'd love stuff like this, this, this, this, and/or this.

Booze: While I don't indulge too often, I'm a fan of absinthe, flavored vodkas, sake (nigori), and red wines. I like some ciders and beers as long as they are not too hops-laden. Hubby, however, adores beer of all types.
Yellowstone: I cannot think of anything I might want, unless you can find a zombie buffalo plush.
I know there is a question about "decorating style", but if you're comfortable, could you should us some photos of your spaces? For those of us who like to art and craft, it can be nice to have a visual sense of decorating style! Gothic shabby chic rococo teal Japanese inspired would be the best way I could describe our style. Granted, our house doesn't quite look like that, but it will eventually (lots of pictures below). I have idea pins on my Pinterest.
For those of you who don't drink alcohol, can you specify if you live with any drinkers or ever have alcohol on hand for guests, vs. abstaining and preferring not to have it around at all? I generally have it on hand for guests and don't mind it being around. It will be used, regardless.

Caffeine is okay; I'm good with gadgets. Flavors - licorice, pu-erhs, Cahi (oh yes, yummy), earl grey, especially the ones with creamy notes like vanilla, mints, matcha of all sorts...the only ones that are hit and miss for me are chamomile in general and most Lipton.
What's your sense of humor like? Do you enjoy puns? Play on words? Dirty humor? Dry humor? Who are some of your favorite comedians? I love puns and plays on words. My sense of humor is sarcastic and witty, although I do love off-color jokes. I love Ron Funches and Tim Michin.

Plain or fun socks? Fun socks, please, preferably ones that are gothic, artsy, colorful, and/or whimsical.

Would you like anything from Lush? Bubble bars and bath bombs would be amazing. No Rock Star or similar "candy" type scents, most I like most everything else.
Do you prefer hand-made or store-bought? I'd love hand made, but the right store-bought item is equally nice.
SPICY! Scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being "oh, that's a bit too much black pepper for me" and 10 being "ghost pepper? scorpion pepper? I laugh at these! I love as much heat as you can throw my way!"

Would you be opposed to receiving a ton of Halloween themed items? Yes, please! *Edit* I just went to Michael's for costume supplies and I can say that I want almost everything Halloween there, especially the black/white stripes, the black wreathers. Oh, I just love Halloween goodies.
9/23/15 Would you be interested in any special little thing I might be able to pick up from the Great Lakes Bat Festival this Saturday? Both Janell Cannon (author of Stellaluna and other kids' books) and Fiona Reid (illustrator for lots of animal field guides) will be there, so would you possibly be interested in something like an autographed copy of Stellaluna or one of Cannon's or Reid's other books? Or something from the Organization for Bat Conservation, like a shirt or other swag? Sure, I would welcome anything, really. What items from the Weenie update interest you, should you have to option of getting anything as a gift from your Witch??? Would you be ok with decants, or bottles? Decants would be lovely.

Talk to me about bags, what kinds do you like? Sizes and styles? I have a number of them, mostly Tokidoki, which is my aesthetic beyond gothy / creepy (I still would love a coffin purse and a bat mini backpack).

I'm under mymymai.

The questionnaire asked about gold & silver jewelry, but how do you feel about copper jewelry? Do you like colorful jewelry, or do you prefer to keep it neutral?

Talk to me, dear witchies, about tea. I know we've covered this a little, but I really need the nitty gritty here- not just companies you like and don't like (Teavana? Adagio? David's? Some tiny place?) but I also want to know the other stuff: top 3 flavors, loose or bagged, the kinds of tea accessories you use- or have always wanted. Be specific. Provide links if necessary. Fellow tea whore here. I have an entire cupboard of it, but then again, I drink 2-3 cups a day and I make a large container of cold tea for my husband every other day. I prefer loose leaf, although I'll never turn down Tea Republic's bagged tea. I like them, David's Tea, Aveda's Calm, Teavanna, and some local Seattle tea companies.

Witch, if you were interested in getting me anything, I'd like to try Apples to Apples and of course I'd love more Chessex dice sets (anything with sparkles in cool tones or anything that shimmers).
What style is your sense of humour? I have many hats, so it depends on my situation. When I'm teaching, it's self-effacing and sarcastic, but at home it's sarcastic and bawdy.

It's my My Little Pony Minty (original). I had always wanted her and she was one of the two (aside from Bubbles) that I failed to get from the Earth Pony series way about in the 80s. My husband found one and she's in a place of prominence on my desk now.

Thar be a dangerous site. Arr. Anything from the tokidoki, Trina Tarantino, or the Hello Kitty line would be freaking amazing. I'm also interested in Fresh's Brown Sugar scent. Dear witch, if you got me anything from any of these lines, I'd have to worship you forever.

Do you like children's toys, such as jacks, those little things you tilt around to get the ball in the right hold (wtf are those called?), the aforementioned caplet dinosaurs, cap guns, etc?

mp3 player holder: No thank you.

How do you feel about copies of music or dvd's that your witch might have that you might enjoy? That would be fun.
Do you expect/rely on other people to plans birthday outings and activities? Damn straight. It only comes once a year. Likewise, I like to plan birthdays.
Can melty things be shipped to you, or will they be in puddles by the time you open the package? I'm thinking chocolates and soft candies as well as things like Lush products. I think the highs have been in the 60s lately, so melty is fine.
How do you feel about trinkets? You know - tiny toys or doodads that serve no purpose than to be cute, take up space and make us smile. Love them or waste of money? No thank you. I’m not sure where they’d go.
Who likes pirates? Arrrgh!
Do you like notes in your soaps or bath stuff that you don't like in your perfumes? If so which? Not really, honestly. Perhaps I can stand my soaps to be a little more foody, but foody scents make me hungry.

Do you play a musical instrument? Yes. I play the piano and flute.
Graveyard art? What is this graveyard art of which you speak?

Favorite GC category: I’m still open to exploration, so not sure.
Ragdoll bunnies? Can’t stand rabbits, so no.
What is one thing that, if you received it in the middle of all the hubbub, would make you smile and take your mind off of all you have to do for a bit? A cute text from my husband, my cat asking for petting as soon as I get home, or past students stopping buy just to shoot the breeze.
What craft (or crafts) have you been wanting to try but have no idea where to start? Custom MLP making might be fun. I’d love to get back to sculpture, but there is not enough room in the house. I wouldn’t mind actually learning how to sew properly.
Guilty TV pleasures: Projeect Runway, ANTM, Jersey Shore, Dating in the Dark
Cosplay: Yes, both anime and gothic Lolita, although lately I’ve been going to conventions in full kimono garb.
DVDs: Widescreen and/or Blue Ray. I have a few on my Amazon wishlist, but I’m open to more along the old 80s/early 90s fantasy genre.
Music formats: MP3 or CD are fine.
Tarts: I have some, but I don’t burn them often enough.

Body mods: 6 total: 4 tattoos, 2 piercings. I shall be getting my 5th tattoo when I save up enough, as it will be a fairly large Cthulhu back piece.
Booze: Absinth and good wine, but I’m not sure about the current state laws re: incoming liquor. I am generally a sipper and I drink perhaps once or twice a month, tops.
Favorite artists/styles: I enjoy Art Deco, and Classical Baroque. I have a particular affinity for Manet’s work. They way he paints his eyes is stunning.
Favorite snacks: I’d say sweets, but I am trying to change my habits. I do enjoy wasabi peas though.
Nail polish: OPI and Zora…generally I like wild colors.
Hobbies/crafts: Painting, sketching anime, crafting head dresses. Hobbies right now include Warcraft (that’s a hobby, right?) and kitsuke, or donning the kimono.
Cute vs. Creepy for Halloween: Creepy, please
Home-made ceramic Halloween decorations: I have no skill with pottery or ceramic whatsoever, so that would knock my socks off.
Mortars and pestles: With grinding ridges. My brother broke my last one and hasn’t replaced it yet.
Phobias: I’m not sure my phobias can be sent through the mail.
If you could be any person, being, or animal from Fantasy what or who would you be?
Tough question. I’m honestly not sure. :shrug:
If you are in school now, what classes are you taking? Does anything you are currently studying really interest you? (if you are not in school, is there anything you are trying to learn?)
I'm teaching high school, but I love me some classics (Greek and Roman). I am currently trying to study Japanese, but it is slow going with grading and lesson planning.
What movie scared the bejeezus out of you as a child?
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom – the monkey brain and heart scenes specifically.
Name a couple of sites you frequent other than this one.
Dragon Cave, Lush Forums (also mymymai ), Project Runway site, Project Rungay, Fark, The Consumersit, The Barganist
If you could have any creature (real or imaginary) as a pet, what would it be?
While I’d like to say unicorn, I’d imagine that it would utterly thrash the house. I think I’d like to have a Serval!
Do you like the Muppets? Which is your favorite?
Yes, and I was always fond of Rolf.
Will you be going out of town during the round, or is there any other time during the round when it would not be ideal for you to receive a package from your witch?
Nope, I will be staying put.
Would you be interested in an astrology birth chart?
I have mine already.
What animal would your daemon be? Alternately, your patronus.
I got the raven, which is telling. I was told my a Mayan healer that I would have been a healer in their community based on what energy he could feel from me. He said my spirit animal is the raven (as is the spirit animal for all healers in their community).
Socks: Sock Dreams, oh how I adore you. I love me some knee-high socks, as well as tosey socks.
How do you all feel about flowers and plants? Flower and plant seeds? Drawings of flowers or plants? Pressed flowers?
Not so much.
How do you feel about marzipan?
Get that vile stuff away from me!

Tea and Chai

Mostly MAC Cosmetics and Urban Decay

Yes, I really like anything new from the Miyazaki/Disney collaboration, but I’d be up for The Little Mermaid or Aladdin too.
Would you like custom icons as a gift?
Would you enjoy homemade bath products (bath salts, fizzies, etc.) and/or linen sprays? Esp. if scented with some of your favorite BPAL scents?
Yes, please! (Just no heavy floral scents)
If you witch made you something and it didn't come out just right, would you still want it?
It’s the thought that counts
Just curious, but if your witch was to make an amigurumi critter (or other plushie) just for you, what would it be? Some kind of evil cat.
No, nothing touristy. Now if we were talking zuni carvings from Santa Fe or something very city-specific, then I might be interested.
Venomous Villains? I'm into dark reds from this collection and perhaps the pigments except for melon.
Last Unicorn? I have the movie and I watch it every other year. I'd be interested in the BPAL scents, shirts with Amalthea or the Red Bull on it, or anything related to those two characters.
Do you collect stones/rocks? I'm talking like "semi" precious stones, ie moonstone, bloodstone, quartz ect. Are there any that you're looking for at the moment? Are you in need of a stone but don't know which kind? That peacock looking stone would be pretty neat.
What kind of shoes do you need/want? What size shoes do you wear? Would you mind gently used shoes? I'd be interested in bright yellow flats in size 8 and royal blue ruffle booties/mary jane shoes (thicker heel). Gently used would be fine too. I adore shoes
Do you like weird scary things as traditionally girly fashion items like heels and handbags? Yes, please!
How do you feel about samples/decants of things other than BPAL? Soap slices, lotion/scrub/shower gel decants, single use make-up/beauty products, etc.: Expose me to anything you like. I'd be interested in any samples except for lotion.
Is there anything you would like that can be delivered over the internet? Things like fanfic recs, cat macros, mp3s you are looking for, how-to or amusing videos, things like that? Maybe some obscure electroclash/early goth/steampunk mp3s would be cool.
What is something you use to comfort yourself when feeling yucky, depressed, or in pain? Black and green teas, super dark chocolate.
Ebooks : I love holding a physical book in my hand, so that would be a pass for me.
So for those of you who are into Harry Potter at all, which house do you think you'd be sorted into? As much as I'd like to say Slytherin, I'd probably be in Ravenclaw.
Living Dead: I currently have a zombie shooting dice game, we have WWZ, and I know I'd fail if there were ever a zombie attack.
Vampires: If we are talking old Anne Rice or Bella Lugosi, I'm all for it.
Garlic: I grew up near Gilroy, CA, so super odd garlicy items are nummy to my tummy.
Soaps : do you like them? What brands? What scents? Anything you're dying to try? Getaguru if you do want to get me soap, please. I adore pure olive/oil and goat's milk soap. Please no glycerin and I'm not super fond of palm oil.
Did someone ask about incense yet? Would you like some? I have a bunch in my MLP lunchbox. I'd be up for frankincense resin, though.
Any oddball free things you collect or would want saved for you? Not really free, but I collect evil cat plush animals and peyote cats (Oaxacan peyote carvings).
If you happened to be my Witchee, is there something you'd like from the Arcana Halloween update? I don't know. I'm still new at the world of lovely oils, so if you want to surprise me, I'd be cool with it.
How many bottles of BPAL do you have? 1: Shirafuji Genta with a Kappn. I have 2 empty sniffy bottles ralenth sent to corrupt me, and I really liked Lilith Victoria.
Is there any exercise program that you're interesting in learning? Meditation, Yoga, Pilates, Belly Dancing, Zumba etc? Or if you do any of these (or anything else sport related) are there any things you need/want? Candles, music, mats, water bottles etc? Oh, I'd love to learn Belly Dancing!
Hair ornaments: I generally like more gothy hair adornments. Black sequin bow barrettes or pvc clips are among the items I enjoy.
Violette Market: I've never looks at them before, so I have no clue.
Addressy books: No thank you.
Pirate stuff: Sure
Are there any particular movies, tv shows or cd’s that you’ve been meaning to buy for years but just never got round to getting? Would you mind a gently used dvd/cd if your witch had it or could get it??
Red Dwarf on dvd would be pretty spiff. My Amazon wishlist has my recent dvd wants.
Is there anything from the Possets' Hallowe'en update you're lusting after?
I haven't checked it out yet.
Would you like a custom/altered toy either from a seller or from your witch (like My Little Pony, or a Barbie or any particular toy that can be changed?)
OMG, a cthulhu or Legend demon MLP would rock my Hello Kitty socks.
Anyone else feel this way? Do you like the candy apple, candy corn or pumpkin spice kisses?
Pumpkin spice kisses sound interesting. Candy corn is always a safe bet, btu hubby might eat them all before I get to them.
do you like jewelry that looks back?
do you like Anne Taintor
Eh, not so much.
How do you feel about recipes?
I'm pretty specific - they need to be cultrual/ethnic recipes. I would be *very* interested in Persian, Greek, Thai, or Ethiopian recipes.
What kind of a cook/baker are you?
I make the best cheesecake around (or so I've heard from people who swear off lactose but go back for seconds and thirds of my cakes regardless). As far as entrees, I need recipes, and I get super finicky when dealing with raw chicken. I wouldn't make the most well-rounded chef.
Are you happiest calling for delivery or microwaving a lean cuisine, or will Food Network be asking you to host their new program?
We eat out a lot during the school year, but I do take pleasure in cooking something awesome.
If I send you something home made would you like the recipe for it?
If you are someone who doesn't want baked goods sent, would you like a collection of some of my favorite recipes?
How about home made mixes or kits? Kind of like the cookie in a jar thing, where you would need to add the perishable ingredients?
That sounds like a lot of fun!
OK, I know that lots of folks love socks. Do you have a preference of length? Materials? Patterns?: I like knee high to tabi socks. As far as patterns, I'm open to anything. I generally go for knee high sock-it-to me or k.bella socks in opaque colors and prints. I need to cover up those ankle tattoos while teaching.
Magnets: Unless you can find Rocky Horror Picture Show magnets, I'll pass for now.
